    Pioneer and NEC to showcase blue-laser DVD drives in December

    Kevin Hsu, Taipei; Adam Hwang, [Friday 25 November 2005]

    Pioneer High Fidelity Taiwan and NEC Taiwan will respectively showcase
    their Blu-ray Disc (BD) and HD-DVD burners and players at the annual
    IT Month fair beginning in December in Taipei.

    The Pioneer BD burners to be exhibited do not have content protection
    due to a delay in licensing of the anti-piracy AACS (advanced access
    content system), Pioneer High Fidelity Taiwan indicated. Volume
    production of BD burners equipped with CCAS will begin next quarter,
    the company noted.

    The HD-DVD players to be shown will have playback functions only with
    volume production to kick off in December, NEC Taiwan pointed out. The
    timing of the launch of HD-DVD burners will hinge on market conditions
    and the strategy adopted by the HD-DVD group, the company added.

    "Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
    because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
    -- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
